They had an amazing knit just like this in COS when I was in there last week. Great if you’re a size XL – sold out in everything else. Could have done with it today in London. Brass monkeys!

Interview for the latest Wonderland that I did over the phone with Thom Browne in Paris. He was super nice and professional. Probably more than could be said for me.

Reminds me of the Katie Eary stand out the back of Somerset House on menswear day. Boxers are everywhere again, but there’s a definite chav-cum-boys club spin on things this time. I love Sunspel underwear too. Dead simple.

Photo by street style legend Mr Hartnett of Cole Mohr after walking in the James Long show at LFW. His hair was sprayed up to match the prints in the collection. I guess the fact it matches his DIY jewellery is a happy accident.

I love JW Anderson and the womenswear is really taking on its own character after breaking free from his menswear collections – they look amazing shown alongside each other. Film by Sharif Hamza. Styling by Robbie Spencer.
